    There used to be a song in the late 80's that had a chorus that repeated "Sail away, sail away, sail away".
    My dear friend Sha and I drove to Tucson, AZ, when that song was popular to visit our best friend. Drove straight thru. He popped that cassette into my cassette player, and sang along (he's also now an opera singer - tho we were high school seniors at the time) and when it got to the chorus, I had what would become a professional tenor belting out from my passenger seat "SAVE THE WHALES! SAVE THE WHALES! SAVE THE WHALES!"
    I about drove off the road.

    Should not be eating cereal when reading on this site. Makes a mess on the monitor when I laugh.

    Star I will have you know that song will be stuck in my head now. I am not sure which lyrics I will hear. Also not sure if I will ever hear it right again.

    Abbey Spork Queen

    Shari, that song has been done by a few...probably the most well known is Styx (yes, I'm a Styx Goddess). Also Neil Yound and David Grey. Styx has "I look to the sea, etc." I could see SAVE THE WHALES!!

    Actually, as I'm listening to it now, it has to be Styx.
